[MonoDevelop] Build from git failing on fresh Ubuntu 13.10 installation

I was able to solve the build issue. Since the error I was seeing looked
like mono was calling something incorrectly, I decided, why not rebuild
mono and try again. That worked.
My assessment is that, in the script linked in my email, one of those
packages installed after mono is built needs to be moved to before mono is
built. Not sure which.
Thanks for the help, I hope this breadcrumb helps someone else.
